Born and raised here and also partially raised and educated in Paris where I have many relatives. Currently my French and Spanish are a bit rusty. Taught French and Spanish, and then worked in the film industry in Washington DC and Los Angeles.
Returned to Cambridge, New England where It is much easier to travel and visit my relatives on Martha's Vineyard, Farmington and NYCity than it was from LA where I was living.
